    Oh Cathy, I am happy we got to talk one last time. I wish I had known it was the last time and talked a little longer. Rest in peace my long time friend.

    I am truly saddened by your passing. I had no idea my old friend would be gone before me. You were like the older sister that I never had. Our many trips around the strip and down Homewood Dr. in your green Camaro, those were the days. Getting stuck with three wheels on the ground and one dangling over the bank at the Rifle Range. Thank God Jamie pulled us out with the wrecker. So many good times. Wish we could have them back now. Miss and love You like a Sister Cathy. My deepest condolences to your family.

    My dear friend, how can I say good-bye? We have so many memories; both good and bad, happy and sad, but they are OUR memories. All the times we went shopping, or simple being silly. Our hospital baseball games. Oh, and we can not forget the first tanning salon in Frankfort. You found the building for me! All the times you begged me to be a Moose member so we could go together? So many things, seems so long ago, but we have recently laughed about those times. I will miss your honesty and your contagious smile. But most of all, I will miss our daily talks. Just know you will be missed by several people as you have touched many lives in this community. You can finally rest now. Fly high, Cathy. I will miss and love you forever. You will NEVER be forgotten by all who were fortunate to have known you.

    It’s hard to understand why people are taken from us, but find comfort in knowing Cathy was a special person of a well-lived life. REST IN PEACE sweet Cathy

    Cathy, my heart is sad since I learned of your passing. I’ve thought of all the things we used to do. The first time I skipped school, we went to Lafayette for Taco’s in that 1972 Camaro of yours. I went with you to fill out an application at Wesley Manor, we got the job. (I think they figured it out when we’d both call in sick every payday) Life took us in different directions but you were always special to me. Rest in peace my friend.

  16. Billy Brown April 14, 2021 at 5:53 pm

    I’m so sorry for this. I’ll miss you so much you and I work together at St. Vincent Frankfort hospital. I will always have the memories of us working hard cleaning at the hospital. Now you can rest, bye my friend.
